The latest concerning the sale of tlm
Oiegon and California railroad to tlie
Southern I'lieilic company is taken from
the Hailw.iy Age of January l;Sth. It
reads as follows:
The Oregon and California first mort
gage Ixm.lhiiMer are to receive at the
rate of 111) in exchange for their ptesent I
bonds new forty yea. -old gold 5 per cent,
bonds, liuaiatiti'ed both principal and

with 4 shllings sterling for each preferred

There are many good reasons why
tho state of Oregon should call a consti
tutional convention to revue, and amend
some wesk point, i'l our present funda
mental law. It ha worked admit ably
during the youth of our state.wiien econ
omy was Imperative, but now that Ore

population, Rome changes would be ad
visable t. correspond with present and

have the nlli.ii.ito voice iu accepting or
rejecting the work of such a convention,
and it seems as iithey could be depended
on to do r'k'ht in their decission, and
there is a strong feeling of security in the
present c.i institution, aud a fear that some
political Jugglery might work evil in
framing new provision and inducing
tho tiecepUiico "f tho new work by tho
poop.,. The points to be amended are
not m.inv, and it would seem that differ
ent sections coul.i be framed IrV legisla
tion, as already rovi led, nnd Kiibmilted
to the popular vot.i. That would place
every proposed uttictidmetit on Its own
merit, and riot Uupenl the whole work of
a whole convention. With harmony of

congratulation received ly Mr. Garfield
upon Ins nomination at Chicago, in 130, :
many were marked 'collect,'. It is ;ny j
recul lection, however, lh.it the telcirrapb 1
company in Hut cane canceled the
cliargea. Mont of theo were sent by i
people who either did not know the
amenities or did not care for them, but
many were sent unthinkingly or through
.otiie inadvertence It woult' make fome '
people une.my even yet to know that their ;
fervent and effusive communications
reached Mr. ijarfl.d 1 marked "collect." j
Ona noted gentleman in particular :

nig Mr. (iatfleld to smile as he i:!anccd '
at il. 8oon after the :nder was a can
didate for a high position un.lar the prov
ident. and, as I knew him well and lik;J i
biin, I took o.'.i:aio,i to toll him about
tlie telegram, feeling Bare there was a
niilakc somewhere. Ila was as demor -
ulue l and disgusted a man us one could
lie explained at once to Mr. Garfield
that he had sent the dispatch from a hotel
in New Yoik, and mippoMeil it had been
I'harg.'d to him in his bill, as he directed,
lie was riot apiioiiited, though whether
tlie "co'.l.-tt" dispatch had anything to
do with his failure he never knew. An-
other "collect" dispatch to Mr. G.irtbld !
was f.om one of the most noted American
actors, who was an intimate friend and
great admirer of Garfield, and he would
have been mollified beyond expression
had he know n about the matter. Another
of the "collect" telegram was Irom a
millionaire senator, and another was
fn'iii agrc.it railroad and telegraph mag
unto and millionaire frotr New York.
That was the tno.'t singular one of all,
and it was Ku.tpected that some of the
high officials of the telegraph company!
did it as a joke upon the sender.

There are ati inlinito number of ways in
which a chit I can cam money, and that
too, without paving him for his little
kindness to the ho na pjoplo either, and
then he has an inexpressible filling of
pride and independence when ho buys
something with bis own earnings. There

Dr. A. Brown. United Slates navv.states
in the Medical Hecord that he has found a
ejieitifiefor the troublesome eruption pro
duced by the poison oak or poison ivy so
common in our woo ls and old fences. This
spocificho finds in bromine, which ho
has used with unvarvifig success in at
leas', fortv c.ise. lie uses the drug dis
solved in olive oil,co4moliiie,or glycerine
in the st-otigt!i of ten to twvntv drops of
bromine to the ounce of oil, and rubs the
mixture on the affected parts two or three
times a day. The bromine is so volatile
that the solution should bo renewed eve
ry twenty-four hours. The eruption never
extends after the first thorough appli
cation, and it pro aptly disappears within
twenty-four if the application is persisted

The Potato? Kot.
My experience in growing potatoes
leads to the conclusion that land, cither
loam or clay, made rich with green stable
manure and a decaying sod (which,
usually makes a heavy growth of vines),
will cause them to rot in a wet season. I
am inclined to b.-lieve that the sam
elements' that induce ft heavy growth of
vines will cause the tubers to rot in wet
weathir, especially if any decomposition
is going on lu the soil. Good crops oi
potatoes may be grown upon light grav
elly, soil, with phosphates in a wet sea
son with very little danger of rot. Sucli
soils seldom bold moisture enough to
make an average crop. There are some
times warm, wet spalls of weather or
heavy dews, where a heavy growth of
vines together with the gras3 and weedi
among them do not get dry for a long
j time, and rot is usually the result. Wet
ting and drying induce rot in !nmb?r.
A board in the chamber or a log in the
water do not rot very fast, while a down
tree iu the forest rots in a short time. I
cannot avoid the conclusion that tin
elements that will grow a potatoe may be
' so acted upon as to rot it Home Farm.
Peculiarity of a Horse's Eye
Oue often hears the expression that a
horse dont know its strength. That is a
mistake. A horse is fully aware of ita
strength, but, ovring to a peculiarity of
its optic lens, it is kept iu a constant
state of ituiiuid.ition. A horse's eye
mafiniiles nearly six diameters, and a
man looks like a giant to it. Queer,isu't
it? but true. A'serie3 of curious experi
ments recently made by Parisian savant,
have establislud it b?)-ond any question,

Those who are attempting the cultnro
of grapes should not forget to trim them
at once, if they have uot already done o.
The vine should be trimmed back before
the sap starts up in tho spring never
after. The best and s.ifejt tinu to trim
is in tin fall but if that has not been d :i ,
the sooner the knife is used the better.
i The rule in pruning grapes is to cut all
new growth back, leaving but one bud of
tiie last year's grow th to send out ahools
for the coming year. As grapes ap;o ir
only on the now wood, the ono bud re
ceives the full Btrength of tho branch o i
which ilis left, and it sends out a vigorous
growth of wood which iu turn bears l.irg i
clusters of good sized fruit, juicv an I
well fluvored. If the vine ho allowed , i
